Complete Beethoven Orchestral Works: Vol. 1

The first release in a truly spectacular series from Simax Classics. Thomas Dausgaard, Chief Conductor of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, has started a procjet which will continue for more than five years. Based on the new Bärenreiter Urtext Edition, edited by Jonathan Del Mar, Dausgaard and the SwCO are recording the complete orchestral works by the great master.

First off the blocks is Musik zu Einem Ritterballett, a relatively unknown work from the young Beethoven, although some of the features we know so well are there already. The two first symphonies are performed by orchestra and conductor with a compelling enthusiasm. The compact ensemble, 38 musicians, suits the repertoare perfectly, and gives the audience a chance to come even closer to the music by Beethoven.
